Greenway Tunnel - Torbay, Devon - May 2010

Post  TQexplorer on Fri Sep 10, 2010 11:17 am

Greenway Estate is near Paignton, Devon and has been an important property for 500 years standing at a crossing point of the river Dart. As the railway approached Greenway House in the late 1800’s, a link was needed through the estate to reach the ferry. The owner at the time had fought a proposal for a railway to run across his land down to Greenway Quay from where passengers could travel on to Dartmouth by boat. A compromise was agreed though, with the building of the 495 yard Greenway tunnel that runs under Greenway, and today transports tourists along the steam railway from Paignton to Kingswear.
